The Tombola sequencer doesn’t really need much of a tutorial, but for those not yet familiar this new OP School video really shows how much fun you can have with creating random patterns. Use the coloured rotary encoders to change the Tombola rotation, gravity and more. It’s an interesting way to spice up a static composition.
There’s not a lot that Teenage Engineering hasn’t covered yet in their OP School, but the Pattern sequencer was one of the functionalities that was still missing a tutorial video. Today a new video was uploaded that goes through this 1-bar sequencer, which may seem limited at first sight, but carries a few tricks for getting creative with it.
I loaded up the new OS on my OP-1 and decided to draw the momupro logo using the new Sketch sequencer. Check out the video and the noise the new DSynth can produce at the end.
The OP1’s new OS introduced a new synth called DSynth which is based on the existing DBox drum synth. Cuckoo took a break from his Analog Keys to play this new DSynth in his latest video. While an OP School video would be...
The OP1’s new OS introduced a new synth called DSynth which is based on the existing DBox drum synth. Cuckoo took a break from his Analog Keys to play this new DSynth in his latest video. While an OP School video would be most useful for the DSynth, Cuckoo does a great job showing off the range of sounds you can produce with it.
The addition of the Sketch sequencer tutorial video to the OP-School was indeed an indication of the upcoming OS release. Today Teenage Engineering released the new OP-1 firmware on their website. The new OP-1 OS contains the following new features: DSynth synthesizer engine Sketch sequencer Master tune M1 and M2 now works together Get the new OS here
Teenage Engineering showed some new videos of the The Etch-a-Sketch style sequencer mode that’s on board of the OP-1’s new OS. Sketch allows you to freely draw lines using the rotary buttons and lets you play back the artwork based on a polyphonic musical grid. While Sketch may not be the go-to sequencer for composing serious stuff, it sure looks like an entertaining new feature. Check out the videos.

Up until now Teenage Engineering had the basics and the 4 main modes of the OP-1 covered in their instructional videos. Today 2 new videos are added to the OP School that cover Endless and Finger, two different sequencers that you can find on board of your OP-1. If you are an intermediate user you might even come across some functionality in these videos that you didn’t know about yet.
The new Web TV show Peeps (by Mutewatch), which is about people that have turned their passion into a business, interviewed Teenage Engineering Co-Founder Jens Rudberg for their very first episode. It’s an inspiring interview that goes over the background of Jens, going from developing PlayStation and web games to consultancy and eventually founding Teenage Engineering to develop the OP-1 synth.

I wasn’t familiar with the big Reactable touchscreen table until I saw these videos of the OP-1 interacting with one. While not being very mobile, it looks like a very cool, but expensive way of experiencing your OP-1 and making music in a new way. Here’s what the uploader Jay Gilligan said about the videos on the OP-1 forums: In these videos first the OP-1 controls the Reactable through its midi puck, a block which can be put on the table which feeds midi from the OP-1 to control whatever other block is interacting with it on the surface. The […]
Most people know Teenage Engineering from their OP-1 synth. While it’s their most successful product, not many know that TE also makes a versatile MIDI interface called the Oplab. This circuit board like device allows interconnectivity for USB-, MIDI- and CV-devices making it a versatile option for connecting old and new technology. Besides that, you can connect special made sensors to control your gear with. DJ Thomas White, the OP-1 enthusiast that also showcased the new OP-1 OS after NAMM, made this overview video to show the Oplab and various sensors controlling the OP-1. It seems the Oplab is a […]
